Central Police Supply staff identified Henriquez as a former employee of the store.
“He had immediate knowledge of the layout of the store, both the upstairs and the downstairs, and that’s how he was able to get in there and get out on two separate occasions and get away with a lot of very dangerous equipment,” Sean Teare, with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, said per Fox 26 Houston.
Police have only been able to recover one out of the ten firearms stolen.
“In instances like this when you have multiple firearms stolen, most of them are likely gonna end up sold on the street somewhere, so it’s usually for financial gain,” Teare said, reported by Fox 26 Houston.
